CAPTAIN CRISTIAN SEQUENZIA
Cristian Sequenzia, friends call him Cri (pronounced Cree), is the descendant of a proud and storied ancestry. He grew up in ancient Ortigia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This historic island is at the heart of the naturally fortified harbor of Siracusa, Sicily, Italy. It is the birthplace and homeland of many famous seafarers. Cri, with his knowledge and passion for seamanship, is a credit to these forefathers.
Cri was sailing with his father as far back as he can remember. He had his sea legs before he could run, and was swimming, diving and fishing as a small boy. After college, he went to work for a company that manufactured special parts for yacht construction. He specialized in carbon fiber composites, learning about yachts from the earliest stages of the build process.
In 2012, Cri brought his expertise to Sagittarius’ extensive refit. “When I had the offer to start working on Sagittarius I didn’t think twice. I quit my job to spend a year and a half on board, eight months of refitting and 10 months sailing around Europe and the Caribbean. I love sharing my passion for the sea with our guests; diving, snorkeling, swimming off secret beaches, exploring remote coves, pointing out turtles and birds' nests. I also love having fun water skiing, wakeboarding, and every kind of fishing.” With his many talents and joie de vivre, guests on board Sagittarius are certain to love sharing in all the fun too!
Winter Season 3 crew: Christian, Ilona and chef Jacko.
Summer Season 2 crew: Cristian and Chef/Stew Ilona
MATE ILONA FRICOVA:
Ilona grew up in an idyllic setting, in a storybook Czech village surrounded by woods. The family’s daily routine included caring for lots of animals and tending the garden. They shared a deep love and respect for nature, animals and people. Ilona’s parents had built a canoe, and the family enjoyed most holidays on rivers and lakes. Together they spent time canoeing, camping and fishing. Ilona got her first fishing license when she was just 10 years old, and she has been fishing ever since. Today, she happily shares fishing tips and fish prep and cooking tips with interested charter guests.
Ilona is very energetic. She excels at all types of sports, including tennis and swimming. She modestly mentions that she “collected a few trophies in snow skiing competitions in the Czech mountains”. She is also an avid diver with many certifications including Rescue and Deep Diver, and has achieved Yachtmaster Coastal Certification. She is a very patient instructor with guests of all ages interested in learning to snorkel, or manage the yacht toys. Family charters are her favorite, organizing activities for everyone to spend quality time together.
Four years ago, Ilona began sailing in the Canary Islands and the Balearics. She recognized immediately that yachting is an amazing facet of the hospitality industry. It ignited her passion. She said, “I kept thinking about people who are very busy, a rushed lifestyle with a stressful daily routine. Almost everyone has experienced this. It can be very difficult to slow down, escape from busy work routines. Everyone needs to relax. My goal is to help by providing guests the time and space to relax, to switch off and re-energize. That is the most important part of a good vacation. I take care to do my best for my guests to have fun and create unforgettable memories. And what a pleasure it is to consider this as a job!”
Cristian “Jack” Zoppelletto, nicknamed Jack, grew up with two brothers in a hilly town in the north of Italy. He spent his childhood with family and friends by the sea in coastal Italy fishing and swimming. He went camping in the beautiful Dolomite mountains, climbing in the Alps and enjoyed collecting mushrooms and cooking.
Jack remained in his hometown of Vicenza for 30 years, working as a Chef and as a restaurant owner, until accepting a position and moving to beautiful Lake Garda. Later he enjoyed prestigious positions as a chef, partner, owner and culinary instructor in Courmayeur, Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Barcelona. He attended the Instituto Technico and further expanded his expertise with professional cooking classes, a sommelier and finger food course. While in Barcelona, he organised and taught Italian cooking courses.
Jack says, “I started as a yacht chef in 2014 because I love the sea and the Caribbean atmosphere, culture and very interesting local lifestyle. Plus, fishing, and preparing fish, is a favourite pastime. I find wonderful, fresh products in the markets too, especially fish. I like cooking all international dishes, but, being Italian, I specialise in Mediterranean recipes. Guests are very excited with my typical Italian cuisine.” In fact, guests tend to rave about everything Jack sets on the table.

Thank you Ilona for the detailed feedback!
I love that your great service does not stop at the client but also for the broker!
Glenn has already sent me an email sending his BIG THANKS for such a great trip.
Yes, we are back home. Thanks so much for checking on us.
We had such a wonderful trip with you, Cristian and Bruno. Thank you again for all you did to make it such a special vacation for our family. We will never forgot what a grand time that we had with you.
We were extremely pleased with the yacht and onboard amenities and the yacht was well presented upon boarding and maintained immaculately throughout the charter.Captain Cristian made us feel safe in the execution of his professional duties, plus the Crew certainly made us feel very welcome to be onboard. The crew all went above and beyond to cater for our every need and took the trouble to learn each individuals preferences.
Captain Cristian absolutely made sure he achieved our requests and also made good suggestions.
Chef Bruno provided exquisite food made from the heart! We were all very happy with the service and quality of the food and beverages during the charter, especially the food. Hostess Ilona is very professional and warm hearted.
My client was extremely happy with the recent charter.
Congrats and thanks for making this such an amazing trip for these families- they are super experienced charterers all over the world so I feel this is quite a compliment to have such a positive review!
Again, thank you for your efforts and All the Best, Liza
28 Dec - 4 January, 2019 - St Lucia and Grenadines
The table was beautifully set for different meals, which were first class, the chef was brilliant every time. The crew were always attentive and happy, interested to see what we needed to have, fun and meet our requirements. Internet - they once solved it with their own equipment. We ask sail at night and it was a 3 hour trip unforgettable. Our sail captain Cristian gave us a lot of confidence and we saw he was in control.
Definitely we recommend this boat and its crew.
Lawrence and Lisa
I received an email during the charter saying the trip was great. Thanks again for taking such good care of them.
The captain was super! He dealt with a port engine problem allowing us to continue our cruise (minor problem - repaired and now fully operational). As for the crew, a person couldn't have asked for better service from all aspects of their duties.Great work and great people. The itinerary was 5 star, we couldn't have asked for more.Chef Riccardo was very good as was his meal planning. Alexandra's customer service at the bar and overall attention to us was outstanding. Couple that with her sweet personality she is an asset to any crew. We loved her!We all loved the entire experience of our trip!

The crew were absolutely fantastic. Only thing wrong is we should have done longer!
The food and service were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble.
I would recommend the yacht with the the captain and crew to anyone
Thank you all for our wonderful holiday!❤

Thank you so much to all of you for making such a memorable week for us. We really enjoyed everything and particularly the sunsets and quiet bays!!! Very beautiful and unforgettable.
Thank you again for all your very hard work.......We hope you have now manage to have your party and some well deserved sleep?! We are now just chilling in Mustique for a few days and will do some tours at the end of the week.
When we get home, we will sort some photos of our week to send to you.Looking forward to meeting you hopefully in October in Alba.
Many thanks again for such a special week.Hugs and best wishes to you and your great crew.

Note from broker:
Just thought you would like to know that Stacey sent me a very nice text this morning. They had a great time on Sagittarius and specifically stated the crew made the trip wonderful.Thank you for all of your help and efforts in pulling off a last minute miracle with fisheries!
March 18- 25, 2017 - Absolutely Outstanding!
Hello Sagittarius Crew,
Thank you so much for all your hard work in making what sounds like an absolutely outstanding charter experience for my clients! Please find below a their wonderful review. It was a pleasure working with you and I hope to send many more clients onboard Sagittarius. I also hope to visit onboard my self sometime very soon; maybe November Boat Show?
The Charter was amazing in every way. The Catamaran was beautiful, the crew was an absolute delight and we definitely have decided that any future vacations will have to be a charter. Please see my responses to the evaluation questions below and let me know igf you have any questions. Again, we can not say enough good things about our experience aboard the Sagittarius and the exceptional crew.
Were you able to locate and board your yacht easily and at the agreed time? - Yes, we actually were able to find the Catamaran in the marina the night before our charter.
How would you describe the state of your Charter Yacht? - The Catamaran was in amazing condition. Clean, decorated and adorned beautifully. Provisioned wonderfully. Everything exceeded our expectations at least ten fold.
Were all the advertised equipment onboard and in good condition? - Absolutely
How would you describe your Captain and Crew? - The Captain and Crew were outstanding and amazing. Words alone can not describe these wonderful people. They were extremely warm and welcoming. Knowledgeable, funny, fun to be with, caring and each of them went out of their way to assure that our group had an amazing holiday. Captain Piero was a gracious host, a skilled captain and navigator. Riccardo was an exceptional cook who made sure we never went hungry and created some of the best meals we have ever had. Not to mention his kind demeanor and personality. Christian was always on the go making sure that all of the systems were operational and that we always had what we needed. Last, but by no means least, Alexandra was a blessing. Her caring personality and bright smile made each and everyone of us feel as though we were her only concern. The entire crew and captain went well above and beyond to ensure we had a great time and each of them became part of our family.
Were you able to partake in the activities and itinerary you desired?- Absolutely and then some. The Captain made wonderful recommendations well as provided expert insight on our itinerary choices.
What were your favorite activities and highlights during your Charter? -I would say our favorite highlight was when the Yacht was under sail and not on power. The quiet peacefulness was awe inspiring. I would also say that our Captain and Crew, and our interactions with them were some of our favorite highlights as well. Guana Island was not too shabby either. :-)
How would you describe the quality of the meals and beverages served onboard? - All of the meals and beverages were top notch. Better than what one can get in most fine dining establishments. I would rate the meals as 5 star (our of 5) and the beverages as 5 out of 5 as well.
Please add any additional comments, whether it’s constructive criticism or describing your satisfaction and appreciation. - I think I speak for each and every guest when I say that we cannot express enough our extreme satisfaction and appreciation to BROKER and The Captain and Crew of the Catamaran Sagittarius for making our holiday dreams and wishes come true. Everything from the first contact with Jessica inquiring about charters, to the moment we stepped of the Sagittarius was phenomenal. We each have commented on how we can't wait to do this again and how our vacationing experience from this point forward, has forever changed. Thank you all so very much for everything.

Aug. 1-8, 2015 - BVI's
You guys have been amazing. I feel like we started the trip by becoming fast friends and ended as if we were family. We had the most amazing trip from the first sail to Anegada to the last day in the appropriately named Bitter End Yacht Club. The rope swing, wake-boarding, moonlight tube rides and diving were spectacular. Our favorite part was getting to know you two incredible people. I’ll never forget our long chats on the back deck. You guys are too kind!! We look forward to keeping in touch and we WILL see you again.
Warm regards, Brandon, Jack, Meredith, Laura
Thank you for your hospitality. I loved everything about this trip! Getting to know you both was a special bonus to a wonderful trip.Glad to have new friends with sweet hearts. Best trip of my life. I will think of you often.
Love much, Meredith
We have had many laughs and will carry many fond memories within us of the special Sagittarius, Captain Tony and Paola. They are like family to us and we hope to spend many more adventures with them in the future at sea. Until we meet again!
